Four ways to drive service innovation with the Internet of Things

March 1, 2016

"The Internet of Things is not technical—it’s transformative. Billions of devices and objects (“things”) are being embedded with sensors and chips. As these “things” gain the ability to communicate using the Internet, the resulting information networks deliver an exponential increase in insight about customer behavior.
Organizations can use this insight to create new operating and business models, improve business processes and reduce costs, strengthen security and manage risk, and manage the change that comes with a dynamic environment."

Smart solution for sustainable cities

whitePaper | January 8, 2020

The 19th century was a century of empires. The 20th century was a century of states. The 21st century will be a century of cities.” This quote by Wellington E. Webb, former mayor of the City of Denver, seems plausible when you look at the numbers: Although cities cover only a fraction of the Earth’s surface, they are already home to more than half of the world’s population.

Empowering DSOs to secure the Smart Grid

whitePaper | February 6, 2020

As the world’s growing need for energy meets the power of the Internet of Things, the traditional energy marketplace is rapidly transforming. Millions of meters and energy assets are connected and digitized each year, providing enormous benefits to the entire ecosystem: real time tracking of energy production and consumption data, optimized load balancing systems, streamlined operations and billing systems to name a few. As connectivity expands and the landscape is digitalizing, new distributed energy resources (DERs) and stakeholders are able to integrate into and expand the grid. DERs offer non-carbon resources that improve the energy sector’s overall carbon footprint, a key benefit for everyone.

Internet of Things (IoT) in the Federal Government

whitePaper | June 8, 2021

The Internet of Things is one of the most impactful IT innovations of our time. As consumers, we already encounter the IoT in our daily lives with smart items such as TVs, watches, and phones. As we journey further in time, IoT will become a ubiquitous aspect of life at home and in the workplace. Gartner defines the IoT as the network of physical objects that contain embedded technology to communicate and sense or interact with their internal states or the external environment.” More simply, IoT devices are computers (typically very small), that are embedded into an object to perform a function (e.g., collect data, run software) and connect to a network (e.g., the internet). For example, an IoT device could be an assembly line sensor capable of detecting minute deficiencies and determining when equipment needs repair.
